I have taught in Vigo County schools since 2006.  I have a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and a master’s in special education both fromIndiana State University.  I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade within my years of teaching and enjoy 4th the most. My favorite subjects are math and science, and I truly enjoy teaching Indiana history to my 4th graders.

I am married and have 3 children.   I keep myself busy with watching my children run, play softball and volleyball, and dance.  In my free time, I love to ride my bike and go hiking with my husband.  We love outdoor adventures.
